ACCESSED BY THE CLOUD
CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE IS THE COLLECTION OF SERVER HARDWARE, NETWORKING GEAR, STORAGE RESOURCES, AND SOFTWARE THAT IS NEEDED TO BUILD APPLICATIONS THAT CAN BE ACCESSED BY THE CLOUD. IN A CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE, APPLICATIONS CAN BE ACCESSED REMOTELY USING VARIOUS TYPES OF NETWORKS, SUCH AS WIDE-AREA NETWORKS (WANS), TELECOM SERVICES, AND THE INTERNET.
Cloud infrastructure is also a term used to describe a complete cloud computing system, once all the pieces are put together. In the same way that “IT infrastructure” is a singular term used to describe the multiple technologies that—together—serve as the foundation for an organization's various computer systems.
In the same way, “cloud infrastructure” can also be used to describe the technologies that—once architected together—serve as the foundation for operating in a cloud environment. This is a classic example of something becoming greater than the sum of its parts.
All this technology has to be enabled in order for cloud infrastructure to work. That relies on perhaps the most overlooked technology of all: the operating system.
EJADA brings the interoperability, workload portability, and flexibility of projects—built by thousands of developers in communities working to connect data centres to clouds, incorporate infrastructure with containers, and test security capabilities—to enterprise hybrid cloud environments.
